CGI Cloud takes Railroad Retirement Board to the cloud for $21M

Contract could potentially last 11 years

CGI Federal Inc. has won a $21 million contract to transition and host the U.S. Railroad Retirement Board’s financial management systems in the CGI Momentum Community Cloud.

This award has one implementation year, one base year and nine option years, the company said.

Under the contract, GCI will convert the legacy financial management system to its community cloud, delivering end-to-end support, such as conversion, training, change management, hosting and maintenance.

“CGI has partnered with the RRB on its financial management objectives for nearly 20 years, so moving to the cloud is the next step,” said Toni Townes-Whitley, senior vice president for civilian agency programs at CGI.

“Through this hosted solution, the RRB will create an integrated system that improves security, increases efficiency, and enhances their access to financial data for informed decision making,” she said.
